Our broccoli from winter 2012 was huge, deep rich green and delicious. Our Aubergines from summer 2012 never stopped coming and were given away as we were Aubergined out!
The green leaves are massive and once the cauliflower is harvested the chickens feed on a couple a day.
So far they have escaped the white moth and her caterpillar babies which can munch though those leaves in a day!
I made a delicious rich cauliflower cheese last weekend for guests, this week another cauli was added to Mac n Cheese with a lovely rosemary, garlic and bread crumb on top.
But the best recipe was a Jamie Oliver one called "Curried Cauliflower Fritters" from Jamie at Home. And boy, were they delicious.
I am not one who deep fries - ever - well except this once...and I am so glad I did. These were simply gorgeous and made the cauliflower the star of the show, not the normal side dish.
Even my fussy eater could not stop gobbling these delectable treats.
Fried in a crispy beer batter spiced with cumin, curry powder and a bit of chilli these were a hit!
